Venetian flair in London

The famous ballroom at London’s legendary Claridge’s Hotel in Mayfair has been transformed into an Italian palazzo for a wedding.

The event company used Kudos AV PONGS® DirectTex® Softimage Contrast® from CMYUK, the leading supplier of digital large format printers, cutters and fabrics in the UK, to create breathtaking, romantic, 360-degree Venetian views.

London-based Kudos AV specializes in the production of events, everything from design to installation, including image, sound, lighting, staging, printing and branding. It designed, printed digitally in-house, produced and installed all the elements for this spectacular wedding banquet. Kudos AV, Managing Director, Harry Kataria, said: “We have been working with CMYUK for four years. It is our preferred supplier for print media, especially textiles, vinyl and flooring. We have an excellent relationship with the company, which offers great service and amazing product knowledge.”

PONGS® DirectTex® Softimage Contrast® is a high-quality polyester textile that offers a flawless image experience and innovative, state-of-the-art light diffusion thanks to its black-coated back and smooth white front. PONGS® DirectTex® Softimage Contrast® is compatible with sublimation, UV and latex ink technologies.

Kataria said: “We chose this fabric from PONGS® because it has excellent color rendition and above all, is very malleable. So we can stretch it and attach it to structures without distorting the printed images. We use this textile at company and private events to a great extent for backdrops, media walls, stage designs and stagings. “
